Sky:Lark! / Meadows – Split 7”/DD 2014

23rd April 2014 at 10:56 am

Sky:Lark! / Meadows - Split

Two young and hungry bands, and when I say young I mean nowhere near my age, so that can be up to the early thirties. When I say hungry I mean that they’re both eager and willing to play gigs in smelly little dives…

Red Fang - Euro Tour 2014

Coltsblood ‘Into The Unfathomable Abyss’ CD/DD 2014

11th March 2014 at 10:38 am

Coltsblood

This is the sound of three doomo-sapiens who have let a certain stylistic musical genre annex their existences; who have allowed their host bodies and minds to be possessed and corrupted by the cultural heritage that is DOOOOOOOOOOM. Yes, Coltsblood deliver one very long…

Windhand @ The Star & Garter, Manchester 05/11/2013

White Hills @ The Deaf Institute, Manchester 21/10/13

WOW. WOW. WOW. Yes, the White Hills were everything I hoped they would be and more – in short, they were/are A GLEAMING TITANIUM ROCKET HURTLING THROUGH TIME AND SPACE. But more of these arch-psychoblasters later. A wet Mancunian Monday. From Charles Street car…
